FURIA have had a lot of trouble dealing with Evil Geniuses throughout history. Will today be the day that they finally break that curse? We preview that match and more in today's betting tips.
NiP 2nd map (1.24)
NiP will take on x6tence, formerly known as Copenhagen Flames, in their first match of the tournament. While Copenhagen Flames used to be a decent side, they have now lost four out of their last five games. They just aren’t the same without Farlig, who was an incredibly dominant AWPer for this team, and it is hard to see them beating the Ninjas — especially on their map choice.
Over 2.5 Maps (1.87)
This match has a pretty good chance of going to a decider. Heroic should get to pick Overpass where they will be heavily favored, while ENCE will likely opt for Train, which has always been one of their strongest maps and one where allu tends to deliver big-time for the Finnish side.
Evil Geniuses (1.97)
Evil Geniuses have been very dominant in this matchup historically. In fact, they have won eight straight BO3s against FURIA dating back as far as the NRG days. They most recently defeated FURIA at BLAST Spring Series, and while we are getting shorter odds this time around, it is very difficult to warrant a bet on FURIA here considering their track record against EG.
